hello, and thanks for all the comments. snaffles: i dont think its a forest cat, but i cant remember what they call them.

lovely cat, Gnarf! Is he a Norwegian Forest Cat?

This is gorgeous! I love the details and expression. Adding to faves.

Oh, so gorgeous!!!

Great shot! Pity it was a Free Study, though. A topic like Pet Portrait would have resulted in a much more reasonable 6.5+ score.

I agree with the others and was one of the 4 that gave this a 10. This is a house cat capture with the dignity and power of a big cat. The mossy ground with the colored mushrooms give it a fantasy feel.
The lighting, focus and composition is fantastic. I love it!!

You should be very proud of this!

agreed, great expression and interesting setting, the tight crop works great. Lovely subject.

Meant to comment on this during the challenge, somehow didn't get back to it. Just wanted to say I LOVE the expression and essence of this cat you've captured here. The background works very well and the eyes are perfect! Technicals all handled adeptly. Great job and an image to be proud of.

Excellent expression. Should have scored higher. Great catch.

9 - Up from 8. Really like this. Like the little toadstool/mushroom elements too. The pose/expression is very good. Colors also very nice. Just wish it were 720. Perhaps a more finely tuned crop at the bottom, but minor.

Nice.. one of the better cat pictures I've seen, well done, great capture.
10/06/2006 10:46:01 AM
is that kitty frowning?
10/06/2006 10:31:15 AM
Good capture 9
10/06/2006 06:59:00 AM
Great color, comp and DOF. this is lovely. 8
10/05/2006 07:34:43 PM
there's something so Tolkien about this. I think the cat just ate a faerie. 10
10/04/2006 08:48:52 PM
Great lighting and focus in this photo which I imagine was not easy to achieve since the cat is actually walking.
10/04/2006 05:51:30 PM
This is darn cute. :)
10/03/2006 07:14:22 AM
Great use of DOF to give depth, Stunning Pose, Very determined model.
10/02/2006 10:18:50 PM
Serious C-A-T-I-T-U-D-E!!! Love the expression, the colors and the clarity.
10/02/2006 09:46:46 PM
this is great... her expression and pose - fabulous! 9
10/02/2006 02:04:03 PM
Wow. What a powerful expression this cat's face. I love the focus of the face and the blur of the tail. Wonderful overall expression and composition.
10/01/2006 03:06:41 PM
Great use of DOF in this one. I never really never thought of DOF giving a sense of motion, but with the extended leg it really does here. Great job!
10/01/2006 03:04:45 PM
Nicely shot, good focus to the eyes, well chosen DOF.
10/01/2006 01:27:23 PM
What a beautiful kitty! Just love this pose and intense look
10/01/2006 01:18:01 PM
pretty cat and nice capture..
10/01/2006 12:10:07 PM
Certainly a different take on a cat portrait. Good lighting, ok composition. SHarp eyes.
10/01/2006 09:09:36 AM
Nice cat and lovely natural setting. Overall 8.
10/01/2006 12:31:07 AM
Wonderful pet portrait - greta detail in the face.
